Finnish Academy of Science and Letters
FF Communications 273
Vammala 2000, 279 pp.


The present manual describes in detail methods and procedures for classifying (indexing/typing) folk literature. It has been prepared by an ethnopoetician at the suggestion of colleagues engaged in philological-historical research and is written on the basis of the author\'s experience in both compiling indices for oral folk literature and using indices compiled by others. The Manual describes concepts, methods and working techniques. Three kinds of indices are described: indices for literary motifs, indices for tale types of oral and folk literatures and indices for ethnopoetic genres.
